Figures in the Fourth Dimension: Mechanical Movement for Puppets and Automata

Figures-In-the-Fourth-Dimension

A few years ago, Ellen Rixford published a book, Figures in the Fourth Dimension: Mechanical Movement for Puppets and Automata. She sent us some information and it looks very interesting:

“As I’m writing to you, permit me to put in a shameless plug for my book Figures in the Fourth Dimension, (website: www.figuresinthefourthdimension.com) which has a superb chapter on mechanical movements for a vent figure. The pictures and information there, offered by the extraordinary puppet-building team of Bill Nelson, who sculpts the figures, and Dan Lavender, who builds the mechanical movements, should be a godsend to anyone who wants to learn to put together a detailed and complex hard-head figure. The photos are beautiful, the mechanisms are extremely clever, and the drawings are super-detailed, easy to read, and clear.”
